Integration of solar energy and industrial waste heat into an industrial zone with heat distribution networkand optimization of energy sources for units

Karımı, Sasan
In the context of European Union INSHIP (Integrating National Research Agendas on Solar Heat for Industrial Process) project, solar energy and industrial waste heat integration into two food industry Units are simulated and optimized in Izmir, Turkey. Two Units could be connected by a Heat Distribution Network (HDN) to share energy between them. Unit’s thermal systems simulation and energy sources optimization is done by TRNSYS and MATLAB respectively, to use both software capabilities. In each time interval, initially MATLAB models Configurations’ total fuel cost by nonlinear objective functions. Then it minimizes obtained functions with nonlinear optimization method and finally, based on optimization results, MATLAB controls TRNSYS components to operate Units in optimal condition with minimum cost. In fact, Thermal systems simulation and optimization is done simultaneously in this study. Simulations and optimizations are done for February and June as selected simulation periods. Four different Configurations are defined and investigated in separated sections, to simulate Units with different solar energy or industrial waste heat integration options.


Study Case of Solar Thermal and Photovoltaic Heat Pump System for Different Cities in Turkey
Moia-Pol, Andreu; Pujol-Nadal, Ramon; Martinez-Moll, Victor; Bonyadi, Nima; Baker, Derek (2016-10-14)
The combination of solar thermal, photovoltaic, and heat pump technologies is a welcome advancement in countries with large solar resources such as Turkey. These systems could have similar efficiencies throughout the year for different locations in Turkey if we adjust the solar storage according to the weather conditions. In this paper, solar heating with a heat pump system for buildings have been designed to achieve different values of the fraction of primary energy saved using Flat Plate Collectors (FPC) ...
Solar-thermal driven drying technologies for large-scale industrial applications: State of the art, gaps, and opportunities
Kamfa, In'am; Fluch, Juergen; Bartali, Ruben; Baker, Derek Keıth (2020-7-01)
Research and Innovation (R&I) on Large-scale Industrial Solar-thermal driven Drying technologies (LISDs) is one of the strategies required to transition to a low-carbon energy future. The objective for this work is to guide future R&I on LISDs by defining the state of the art, gaps, and opportunities. To provide a high-level perspective on the current state of solar drying research, results are presented from an analysis of the content relevant to LISDs found in 45 solar drying Review Articles published in ...
Analysis And Assessment Of Daily And Seasonal Photovoltaic Heat İsland Effect On Sekbandemirli Rural Region By Local Weather Data Records
DEMİREZEN, EMRE; ÖZDEN, TALAT; Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin (2022-1-01)
Photovoltaic Power Plants have a considerable share among solar energy conversion technologies toward environmentally sustainable and economically feasible electricity production. However, when a rural region's land surface formed by natural soil types is covered by a Photovoltaic Power Plant (PVPP)'s dark-colored solar modules in large numbers, an artificial albedo (reflectivity) change is expected on that surface. Because of the heat exchange between these modules and the air surrounding them due to albed...
Technical potential of rooftop solar photovoltaic for Ankara
Kutlu, Elif Ceren; Durusoy, Beyza; Ozden, Talat; Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin (2022-02-01)
Turkey, which has immense solar potential, has recently shifted towards solar energy and new renewable energy deployment regulations, including implementation and commercializing rooftop PV technologies. Thus, these require a detailed assessment to determine the power source's capability and convince the policymakers. To the authors' best knowledge, there is no available data or a city-based study for the rooftop PV potential in Turkey. Here, we present the first city-based rooftop PV potential study in Ank...
Simulation and control strategy adaptation of a parabolic trough collector integrated thermal system for industrial processes
Pınarlı, Deniz; Bayer, Özgür; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2022-1-11)
In this study, integration of solar heat to a milk pasteurization process is addressed. A single tank system with thermal energy storage (TES) is simulated dynamically by connecting the models of individual components to each other, using a simulation tool coded in Visual Basic. The parabolic trough collector (PTC) model is developed such that the time evolution of temperature distribution along a series of collectors can be observed. Lumped approach is employed in the TES unit model in which the heat...
